Academic Program Evaluation in California 1989-90. The Commission's Fifteenth Annual Report on Program Planning, Approval, and Review Activities. Report 91-12.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The California Postsecondary Education Commission's annual review of California public higher education discusses three major topics: program planning; approval of new programs; and the review of existing programs. The section on planning covers planning procedures of the segments, a 1991 list of projected programs, trends in subject areas and among campuses, a commission review of projected programs and a discussion of future roles of the commission. The section on approval of new programs describes the approval processes in the segments and at the commission, early monitoring of borderline programs, and proposals for new programs in 1989-90. The 65 proposed programs are listed. The existing program review section looks at review schedules in the segments, the process at the University of California (UC) and at California State University, (CSU) the results of the process at those two places and the review process at the California Community Colleges (CCC). A concluding section reviews progress and follow-up in implementing the Commission's previous year's recommendations and discusses a proposal for a statewide intersegmental planning framework. Appendixes making up the greater part of the document include: a report titled "The Commission's Role in the Review of Degree and Certificate Programs"; a chart profiling undergraduate degree programs in California's regionally accredited independent institutions; a list of projected programs; recommendations of the Advisory Committee; status of proposed new organized research units, and multi-campus research units, UC; list of currently organized research units and multi-campus research units in the UC; list of existing programs showing current status of each; an outline of the report on program review in the CSU; copy of a memorandum from the Chancellor's office, CCC; a list of the previous year's recommendations, and 16 references.
